The life of a Christian – is it boring?

 

The life of a true Christian is not boring, it is peaceful, filled with light, and it is a life of spiritual rest

Yes, indeed. The life of somebody that does not have faith and takes the path of Christianity, is boring. I mean, if someone would come to monastery and live in the conditions that I live I think they will be bored here. But I am not bored because I know what I have to do and why I do everything that I am doing. So, the life of a true Christian is not boring, it is peaceful, filled with light, it is a life of spiritual rest. But for somebody that doesn’t have faith and who takes the path of Christianity, for they as they do not have faith this would be indeed a boring life.
